Trout Fishing at Bettyhill, Scotland


Bettyhill lies at the mouth of the River Naver on the north coast, well situated as a base for exploring the many excellent trout lochs in and around Strath Naver, all providing fabulous fly fishing for truly wild trout in the most magnificent wild surroundings. A bit of a walk will take you to lochs which may not have seen a fisherman in years.

Sea Trout and Salmon Fishing - River Naver Scotland


The River Naver flows the eighteen miles from Loch Naver to enter the sea at Bettyhill. It is one of the most productive, and exclusive, of Scotland’s salmon rivers, rivalling the Helmsdale for numbers of fish. This will mean little to most of us, though, as the Naver also rivals the Helmsdale in its exclusivity. It is a very private river. The lower beat, however, is reserved for the local angling club and a limited number of daily permits are available to visitors.


The fishing for both salmon and sea trout can be excellent on the lower association beat of the River Naver. Angling Clubs and Associations Permits to fish the Association water on the River Naver can be purchased, on a first-come-first-served basis at Bettyhill General Merchants (Post Office), Bettyhill.


Please contact the Bettyhill Hotel for any further information. We will be more than happy to assist you with any questions.
